Hi and welcome to my online home! I am a photographer located in Phoenix, Arizona. I'm married to my wonderful hubby, Jon, and we have 7 fur babies: Kitty Amazing, Baby Kitty, Petunia, and China, our cats, Hank and Seymour, our dogs, and Junichiro, our hedgehog. Admittedly, Junichiro is more of a spiky baby than a fur baby. I love travel, nutella, donuts, cupcakes, (okay just bring me all the carbs alright?), reading, green tea, soccer, dancing, and soft pillow cases. I love having you, I hope you stay awhile.
Jessica and Justin’s intimate wedding took place on Whidbey Island in a cozy backyard filled with ponds, trees, and all their friends and family. The Quintessa was the perfect spot to allow the couple and their family to enjoy the weekend prior to having their wedding day.
Their ceremony took place in front of a gazebo covered in ivy. As the couple exchanged vows, they chose to complete the ceremony of hand tying to symbolize their commitment to one another. Each one of their parents laid one of the four cords over their hands before their friend and officiant tied all the cords into a knot, binding them together. And as Jessica, wearing a gorgeous white dress with silver detailing, gazed at Justin, clad in a traditional kilt, you could feel the love they shared.
The reception that followed was filled with good food and laughter. All the men left to get their BBQ on while I watched with heart emojis in my eyes LOL Because bbq and mac n cheese might be the two best things ever. I also loved that they had a different drink glass printed with their names and Irish symbols set out for every guest so they could take a piece of the wedding home with them!
These two have so much fun together. And that chemistry! They laughed and held each other close throughout the entire day. You could feel their feelings for each other radiating from them. It was truly beautiful to be a part of.
This day has been four and a half years in the making, after the couple met at a bar on St. Patrick’s Day. They went on a date the very date day and have been inseparable ever since.
Then, while on vacation in Florida, Justin got down on one knee before Jessica on the beach at sunset. And what is more picture perfect than that?!
Thank you for choosing me to capture your day, keep on sharing that laughter and magic with each other 🙂
